Egypt, in a sign of growing confidence in its Gulf War stand, reopened its universities Saturday after a two-week delay. Mid-term holidays were scheduled to have ended Jan. 26 but were extended after the Gulf War started Jan. 17. Diplomats said the delay was aimed at averting possible demonstrations at universities, where the anti-Western fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood enjoys considerable support.

Carl Diedrich, a German-born vagabond whose modest coffee-roasting business gave rise to the international Diedrich Coffee chain, died at his Costa Mesa home recently of complications from Parkinson's disease. He was 86.
